[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 427

post #4261 of 6126
Close enough for horseshoes. Even 3840 X 2160 isn't technically full 4k tho there are some monitors out there with 4096 x 2160 which is true 4k. WQHD is 3440 x 2160 isn't 4k either...so meh. It works and I'm happy.

As for the cable lengths they are like 1m..very short. I had to use my old cables I got with the Asus RoG Swift.

I'm sure it's a fantastic monitor and has more than sufficient pixel density but there's no reason to label it 4k because it's close, which in this case it's not even. it's barely 70% there. there are threads debating 21:9 1440p vs 4k precisely because they are viewed as almost different standards altogether.

Just dropping a quick note to say that the 358.59 drivers DID fix the issues I was having with G-Sync in Rimworld so if you bought this monitor and are using G-Sync for the first time with the "latest" drivers available when it came out be sure to switch to the hotfix drivers for a better experience. I didn't get much time to test things last night but I'll post additional impressions about the differences when I can.

Just got a reply from Proshop in Denmark.

It seems that Acer can't deliver. Acer has no monitors. They are trying to get answers from Acer but Acer chose to not say anything about a new delivery date...

And that's why they choose to close down all orders on this one because it seems they won't get any of this monitor!



Nice, good job Acer! You want to earn money, you invent something everyone wants, you produce a few samples, but you didn't expect them to sell that good? Nice counting, some people should get fired from their jobs! mad.gif

Well, you can't know if it's Acer's fault or maybe they too have run out of parts from third-party manufacturers the monitor depends on. Just saying. But yeah, it sucks for people waiting to buy it.

I wonder whats really going on at Acer. They did remove it from the Acer store too.

No, not really. Compared to a 21:9 3440x1440 panel a 4K panel has 56% more pixels, I made the calculations several pages ago about it. And that's talking about a UHD monitor, so 3840x2160. If we take into account a real/true 4k monitor the count goes even higher.

 

 

P.S.: The monitor is 3440x1440 and not 3440x2160 ;)

They are selling pretty quickly. The US page on Acer's site sold out within about 4 hours and the Canadian page lasted about 1 hour before they were out of stock.

My guess is that it is an extremely popular option and people are buying them up quickly. Same thing happened up here in Canada and the US with the ROG Swift when it came out.

I know that the monitor is 3440 x 1440, which is a lot better than the 2560 x 1080 that one of the new Acers are planning to be even at 35 inches sheesh.

Yes I called it 4k and technically I'm not accurate. I was pointing out that anything under 4096 isn't technically 4k.

Either way, whatever it is officially called.. heck 3k? It is still an outstanding monitor and I'm enjoying it immensely.

I wasn't in the market then for a monitor so I didn't follow, but how long before they were comfortably in stock again?
